Gennimata to Present KINAL’s “New Change” Programme on Wednesday

September 16, 2020

ATHENS — Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) will present its proposals for a "New Change" that ensures the country's "self-confidence with dignity" at the Thessaloniki Helexpo Forum, KINAL leader Fofi Gennimata said on Wednesday after her meeting with the board of TIF-Helexpo.

She accused the government of "massive failure' in its management of the pandemic, noting that its policy "leads to ruins".

On her party's programme she said that it is a comprehensive programme that can contribute to facing the crisis, creating new jobs and reducing inequality.

Regarding the European Recovery Fund, she said that her party's proposals "will not allow these funds to be lost to help [the government's] friends, the few and its clients but be spent on all Greeks, as the country needs".

Gennimata will address the Thessaloniki Helexpo Forum at the Vellidis congress centre at 19:00 on Wednesday.
